Following today’s earlier Technic Land Rover Defender 110, here’s one little smaller. OK, a lot smaller, but it’s no less recognisable as a result. Recent serial bloggee de-marco has done a simply brilliant job recreating the original classic Land Rover in 5-wide mini-figure scale, shown here in roofless safari-spec. There are instructions available too and there’s more to see on Flickr via the link.
Awarded a meal-token for every find, one of our Elves is about to get very fat. These ten brilliant Town-scale off-road vehicles are the work of just one builder. Pixel Fox owns the mind (and hands) behind them, and he’s done a simply stupendous job of recreating some of the world’s best known off-roaders in mini-figure scale, as well as building a delightful scene for each one to reside within.
Above, clockwise from top left, are a film-set Hummer H1, South African Volkswagen Syncro, beach-bound Jeep Wrangler TJ and a forestry Mercedes-Benz Unimog 406.
Next are two of the world’s most prolific 4x4s, the iconic Land Cruiser J70 (left) complete with an adorable brick-built rhino, and the legendary Land Rover Defender 90 (right).
The final set of instantly recognisable off-road vehicles is made up of a Mercedes G-Wagon, tragically pictured on red-carpet duty, a superb Range Rover Series 1 going hunting, a lifted Jeep Cherokee XJ, and a Dakar-spec BMW X5.
Each creation is wonderful in its own right, and you can see more of all ten mini-figure builds at Pixel Fox’s Flickr album by clicking here, whilst we begin feeding a very deserving TLCB Elf!
Lego is designed to be used. Chewed. Dropped down the stairs. And, in this case, rally-driven through autumnal woods. VKTechnic is the builder, the 1970 Safari Rally winning Datsun 1600 is the car, and Power Functions motors are the propulsion. See more of Lego being used as it should be on Flickr or Brickshelf.
